Sturdy Whipped Cream Frosting

This is a wonderful whipped cream frosting that is very stable and does not melt at room temperature unlike many standard whipped cream frostings. It also makes a great dip for fresh fruit -- not too sweet, just right! This recipe is probably easiest when made a stand mixer but will work with any good mixer.


 Ingredients


  1. 1 - 8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
  2. 1/2 cup granulated white sugar
  3. 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  4. 1/2 tsp. almond extract
  5. 2 cups heavy cream (whipping cream)


Instructions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and almond extracts.
  2. Using the whisk attachment, mix on medium speed until smooth.
  3. While continuing to mix, slowly pour in the whipping cream.
  4. Whip until frosting holds a stiff peak, making sure to scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl occasionally.


Notes

  1. This is a recipe I found on another website and have used it with success on several occasions.
  2. Make sure to use granulated, and not confectioners' sugar.
  3. You can also substitute other flavorings for the almond extract. I have used lemon extract to add a citrus flavor when I used it as a filling.
  4. You can pipe and decorate with this frosting, but you will need to make sure you whip it to a stiff consistency so that the decorations hold their
